If one were to accept the dictionary definition, that’s precisely the conclusion one could rightfully come away with.
1 : unlawful sexual activity and usually sexual intercourse carried out forcibly or under threat of injury against a person’s will or with a person who is beneath a certain age or incapable of valid consent because of mental illness, mental deficiency, intoxication, unconsciousness, or deception
2 : an outrageous violation
— Merriam Webster
Remove the sexual reference and it’s all about force. Review the uncensored history of the Democrat Party and see when they didn’t get what they wanted politically or socially, they resorted to bullying, persecution and/or downright murderous violence to force their opponents to succumb.
Fast forward to November 8, 2016 when the presidential election didn’t go the Democrats’ way, they immediately created a #resistance movement because they believed the very legislation liberals imposed on the American people were about to be erased. While Republicans have been repeatedly told to respect the “will of the people” when Democrats were in control of the agenda items, they conveniently forget what we were all told when they could force their will on the American people.
Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won. So I think on that one I trump you.
— President Barack Obama to House Republican Whip Eric Cantor, 1/23/09
With the election result of 2016, Democrats are ironically getting a taste of that “trump” and of course, they can’t accept the results of a vote they didn’t win. They seldom do.
1994: Prop. 187 Approved in California
1999: CA’s Anti-Immigrant Proposition 187 is Voided
2008: California Votes for Prop 8
2012: Prop. 8: Gay-marriage ban unconstitutional, court rules
When the left wins, it’s called the “Will of the People”. When they lose, it was because The People were either uninformed (too stupid) or too narrow-minded (bigoted) to know how they should have voted, thus the results must be challenged and the “Will of the People” be overturned. See how this works and why we are where we’re at today?
— Bob Parks, 3/26/13
Democrats and their operatives have successfully used the courts to undermine the will of the people at the ballot box and now, even that is being threatened with the looming confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
We’re gonna punish our enemies, and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.
— President Barack Obama, Univision Radio interview
Again it’s ironic that Kavanaugh would probably have approached his new position with a desire to be fair and nonpartisan, that is until the left unleashed a barrage of partisan attacks on him and his family. A Supreme Court justice Kavanaugh will look at things in a whole new way and that has Democrats doing what they’ve always done: impose themselves on others and intimidate.
The recent marching orders for intimidation officially came from a former United States attorney general as well as a member of Congress.
Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.
— Rep. Maxine Waters, (D-CA)
Almost everything Democrats do involves marketing the politics of fear and division, and when that doesn’t work, they ramp it up to intimidation and cowardly violence; not necessarily in that order. The left will counter that the bipartisan Tea Party was a resistance movement. Yes, it was but the methods were very different and the right has never resorted to random disruption, physical intimidation and violence to achieve their objectives. They even clean up after themselves when they congregate to protest, unlike the left.
Why are Democrats going so batshit crazy in the runup to the midterm election? Their media is telling us all that the House flipping to the Democrats is a fait accompli and the Senate could even be in play. If that’s the case, why all the hysterics? Is it really out of panic that women may lose the “choice” to discard inconvenient babies, or could it also be the continued deterioration of their ability to force their will on the American people?
President Trump is removing regulations created and enforced by unelected liberal Democrat bureaucrats because, as President Obama boasted, “elections have consequences”.
All Democrats have left is rape: carried out forcibly or under threat of injury against a person’s will.
